Desert Rose Shawl by Renee Leverington

First I am going to show you some lovely photos of this beautiful shawl that Sandra Singh has up at her shop.

Get ready to "oo" and "aw"!

THE DESERT ROSE SHAWL BY RENEE LEVERINGTON

The beautiful Desert Rose shawl was designed by Renee Leverington of "Goddess Knits" exclusively for Sandrasingh.com and knit in The Alpaca Yarn Company's lace yarn Suri Elegance. Renee Leverington grew up in Arizona where the crystal Desert Rose is abundant, these beautiful rosette shaped crystals inspired Renee to create her elegant Desert Rose Shawl.

THE LUSHIOUS YARN IT WAS MADE FROM
Suri Elegance
The Desert Rose Shawl's beautiful knit fabric, with exquisite drape, is created from The Alpaca Yarn Company's 100% suri alpaca lace weight yarn Suri Elegance. Its knit from the top down and consists of two identical sections worked together with a dividing stitch and garter edge stitches, the pattern is charted.

Personally, I am in love (read "lust") with Falling Leaves and Middle Earth! Now if you want to try your hand at this project or am a "fiberholic" like I am, head on over to SandraSingh.com and read all about the pattern and yarn and everything! I just liberated some of the highlights from her site.
